Local crisis and prevention fund

Local crisis and prevention fund: emergency payments or household goods

Get help if you can't afford the basics like food, gas, electricity or household goods.

Bristol City Council no longer offers a school uniform grant scheme

If you are facing a one off financial crisis outside of your control you may be eligible for an Emergency Payment.

We can help you in a financial crisis by:

  • giving you an emergency payment for essentials like food, gas or electricity 
  • supplying household goods if you can't afford basic furniture or white goods, like a fridge or a cooker

You won't have to pay anything back.
